Silverland Intermediate School
PROJECT COST: $21.1 Million
This new educational campus -- including an elementary and intermediate school -- reflects both the built and natural context of Fernley, providing a sense of community and permanence.
A central courtyard organizes each school, providing flexible spaces for both social and educational interactions. The elementary school is based on grade-level pod arrangements, with each pod focused around a multi-purpose, shared/flexible space for spillover activities and group assignments. The intermediate school features grade-level wings that advance the practice of team teaching.
